from a newspaper clipping:
Lake Tragedies Mar Outings
A two-day outbreak of drownings took the lives of at least three persons and possibly accounted for a fourth victim this weekend.

Two persons drowned Saturday and a Sunday cruise on Great Salt Plains lake near Cherokee ended with one fatality. Alfalfa county deputy sheriff Hoot Gibson reported Mrs. Faye Houston, Enid, drowned when a boat in which she was riding capsized.

Gibson said three others persons, including the victim's husband, Walter Houston, escaped. He said the group was riding in a 12-foot craft powered by an outboard motor. The lake was choppy, he said. County officers were searching for her body late Sunday.

Earlier Sunday an Oklahoma City man died while laying a fishing line in a farm lake east of the city. A companion, H. F. Sinker, said George Wildman, 73, [sic] of 827 NW 9, may have drowned. He said the victim suddenly went under after he apparently stepped in a hole.

A coroner investigating the accident said death may have been caused by a heart attack. A pulmotor squad said there was little evidence of water in the lungs.

The body of John Lee Bailey, of Temple, was found Saturday night in the Temple City lake. It is believed that he fell into the lake from a pier Friday night.

Ray Dodson, 16, of Henryetta was the second Saturday drowning victim. His body was discovered in a strip mine pit where he had gone swimming earlier.

Obituary for George:

George R. Wildman, 71, early Oklahoma resident and later a longtime Canadian farmer and groceryman, died Sunday while fishing at an Oklahoma City farm lake. Services are pending at Garrison funeral home.

He is survived by his [second] wife Maudie, of the home; three sons, Kenneth, Toledo, OR; Chester, Seattle, WA; and Clement of Canada; his mother, Mrs. Edith Wildman, and a sister, Mrs. Clara Fields, both of Vici; five brothers: Ted, Portland OR; Milford, Coeur d'Alene.
